Breast Augmentation

If you often wish that your breasts were larger, fuller or shapelier, breast augmentation may be the right choice for you. This cosmetic procedure is used to increase the size of smaller breasts or breasts that have become deflated and "saggy" from weight loss, pregnancy, particularly breastfeeding, or age. Breast augmentation (also called augmentation mammaplasty) uses implants or fat transfers to enlarge and shape the breasts.

Your new look will bring you greater freedom with fashion and may give your self-image a boost as well. Occasionally, a breast lifting procedure (mastopexy) may be recommended to contour and tighten skin that supports the breasts, in addition to the augmentation.

The providers use both Allergan and Mentor products, and were involved with both companies in clinical studies that led to reapproval of cohesive gel implants for general use.
